4 of 12 Boys Trapped in Thailand Cave Have Been Rescued

Bodhi was not a member of the Wild Boars soccer club - rather he tagged along on the cave trek to be with a friend who is on the team. But, their conditions are unknown.

"Today we managed to rescue and send back four children to Chiang Rai Prachanukrua Hospital safely".

Fifty foreign divers and 40 Thai divers are now involved in the rescue operation, The Guardian reported, with teams from Australia, the US, UK, and China aiding in efforts. Two drivers will accompany each boy being taken out.

Only diving teams, medics and security forces remain at the entrance of the cave, as all non-essential staff has been cleared from the site.

The boys' conditions were "not that bad" and "they're OK", according to Eve Tapanya from the Tourist Police.

After a short deluge of rain on Saturday night and with more bad weather forecast, Narongsak on Sunday said authorities had to act immediately.

Musk said on Twitter the aluminum sub would be tested until Sunday midafternoon California time before being placed on a 17-hour flight to Thailand.

Sunday's initial rescue effort was expected to continue into the evening due to the long journey from where the boys are located. The families of the youths had been informed of the plan, he said.

"Experts' assessments indicate that today is the most ready we can be", Choorat Panngao, Provincial Police Region 5 deputy commander said.

Engineers have been diverting the water flow into the cave over the past week and pumping it out at a rate of 180,000 litres an hour in an attempt to make it easier for the boys to escape and reduce the amount of time they must spend underwater.

Bursts of heavy rain soaked the Tham Luang Cave area in Thailand's northern Chiang Rai province overnight, increasing the risks in what has been called a "war with water and time" to save the boys. The four boys who were ferried out by up to 90 divers from Thailand and all over the world, are now in hospital.

The order to leave the site came as irritation over the media presence grew, and a day after the rescue mission chief said conditions were flawless for the evacuation to begin.

His news of creating an escape pod came after U.S. and Thai officials got four boys out of the flooded cave network after spending 15 days trapped along with their soccer coach. If something changes we'll stop.

In any case, it's instructive to see how the crowdsourced engineering exercise unfolded over the course of just a couple of days.

Looming rain was one of the main enemies of the operation, threatening to flood the cave complex in mountainous northern Thailand, although a bewildering array of other dangers could also doom their safe return.

In letters written by the boys released Saturday, the boys appeared calm and reassured their families they were "fine". I miss you dearly.

Expert climbers, divers and Thai Navy Seals have mulled contingencies ranging from drilling an escape route through the mountain to waiting out the monsoon inside the cave.

Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk shared photos and videos of a metallic pod that may help rescue a group of boys trapped in a cave in Thailand.
